I just keep searching on google “how long can you live when treatment no longer works and you have ovarian cancer” and different forms of that trying to find an answer. I know google doesn’t have that answer. But maybe I think knowing would soften the blow or something. I don’t know.
So far it appears the Doxil is not working. And for some patients their CA125 goes up after cycle 2 and then the drug kicks in. After 2 cycles mom’s CA125 is up to 2,153. It was 1,613 in May. She completed cycle 3 on Tuesday and on July 19th she will have a blood draw to see where her CA125 stands after 3 cycles.
In August she will have a CT scan. If the scan isn’t good and the Doxil is in fact not working there will be some decisions to be made because we are at the bottom of the barrel as far as ovarian cancer treatment drugs go.
For now we will try to put all of this nonsense out of ours heads and head to Florida in July and Hilton Head in August because that’s what we do.
As always thank you to all that pray for us and send us so much love. On June 24th it will be 3 years since her diagnosis and all your love and support has helped carry us through. 💜
